Dear Sir..

Do not wait for any site to take the initiative to start anything.

Take your own steps.
I self taught myself Sanskrit at the age of 37..( 12 yrs ago) cos there was no teacher in the country I stay in..i formalized it by sitting for exams in India and rest is history and I also teach Sanskrit today.

It isnt all that hard.
I am not saying this to show off but just wonder why when teachers are available in India so easily and so many books around yet many are always waiting for someone else to take the initiative to start Sanskrit.

On a personal note I feel this whole group teaching doesnt work as well cos each person has different capabilities..its better to teach one student at a time.

Thats what I do...I teach personalized classes in my country.

Start now..dont wait.
Why wait?
Or what are you waiting for?

These days it is difficult to find students who would like to learn sanskrit. Its appeal is restricted to those

wanting to become temple archakar or priests for marriages or death ceremonies.It was thrust on me in 7th

standard in school ,the other choice being Higher grade tamil language.My sole interest in tamil was only

spoken brahmin tamil duly corrupted by delhi hindi.An interesting mix of course.

The basic utility of language is only to facilitate communication.

As one grows older,there is less to communicate on more and more subjects.Best luck to those who want to

propagate sanskrit and get stoned by dravidians who would like to label them as Aryans from elsewhere.

I dont think this Dravidian stoning others can hold any good.

A lot of those who follow my site are from TN india and not all have TB sounding names and many are very interested in Sanskrit.

So its not about blaming others if one doesnt want to learn Sanskrit.

Samskrita Bharati has regular events in TN and many non TBs too participate.

Its only a handful of non TBs who oppose anything.

Also it depends how one markets Sanskrit.

I teach it as a secular language so that anyone of any race..religion learns it.

Not all of my students are Hindus.

If we want to learn a language there is no need to attach a religious tag to it.

Learning a language need not always be for the purpose of communication or for economical reasons...it could be as an intellectual pursue purely for personal interests.

Also learning a new language helps our brain function too.

Many benefits of learning a new language whether its Sanskrit or any other language.
